As the largest community foundation in Texas and one of the largest in the nation, Communities Foundation of Texas has a vision of thriving communities for all, seeking to grow community giving, expand community impact, and advance community equity.

CFT works side by side with individuals, families, businesses, and nonprofits through charitable funds and strategic grantmaking. CFT has awarded $2.5 billion in grants to nonprofits since its founding in 1953 and professionally manages more than 1,300 charitable funds. CFT leverages extensive community and gift planning knowledge to serve and understand donor needs, expertly handle complex gifts, and provide customized giving guidance.

Through CFT’s programs, such as CFT for Business, Educate Texas, Emerging Leaders in Philanthropy, GiveWisely, the Live Oak Society, and North Texas Giving Day, CFT helps maximize both generosity and impact. This year marked the 15th anniversary of CFT’s North Texas Giving Day, and $63.9 million was raised for more than 3,200 local nonprofits. Together, a community of givers has fueled this incredible generosity movement, generating more than $566 million in impact for nonprofits since its inception in 2009.

CFT staff experts are always available to help you think through what matters most to you and how that can align with your giving strategy. Contact the team at your convenience to learn more about the benefits of charitable giving funds and how we can help you help others.
